Review of lastpass starting with the features if you have no prior experience with password managers you may not know anything about how they work it may be a little difficult using a manager that only comes with advanced features to the developers credits lastpass is.
Packed with a myriad of features however the perfect combination of both basic and advanced features is one of the reasons it's an outstanding option in our books in fact its free version is not left out coming with so many features to rival some premium password managers to be honest you will be hard-pressed to.
Find any other free option that can rival lastpass's freemium when it comes to features that said we remain on our stance that you should stay away from free options moving on the first striking feature on lastpass is its autofill feature which enables users to effortlessly retrieve.
And autofill their details this feature is so seamless that it rapidly normalizes regular lastpass use when you browse most password managers often disappoint and come up with all sorts of glitches when navigating but that's not a problem for lastpass the next remarkable feature you'll find.
On lastpass is its username and password generator while this feature looks basic on the surface it's practically one of the most important features you will find on any password manager with it creating strong passwords becomes effortless so you'd never have to need to reuse previous passwords.
The manager's automatic prompt also means the app detects data entry fields advises you to save your new password or key in your vault and prompts you to create a unique password with just one click when the automatic prompt is combined with the password generator you have on your hands an incredible tool that takes.
The hassle out of everything another impressive feature you will find is lastpass's emergency access this is one of the best features on the manager for sure it enables users to nominate some trusted people in their lives to gain access to their accounts if the need arises this feature could be vital during emergency situations.
However it's highly recommended that only the most trusted people in your life should be made emergency contacts to nominate someone for emergency access you simply have to enter their email then the person will be able to send a request to have access to your vault once the request is sent you will receive the notification via email.
The notification will prompt you to either decline or accept a request but you don't need to choose immediately as there's usually a wait time the default wait time is two hours but you can customize it to up to a month the waiting time gives you the time to think about what you are about to do thoroughly and choose to either go ahead.
With it or discontinue however even after you have granted the access you can revoke it whenever you want understandably this feature can only be enjoyed by users subscribed to premium and family plans and not free users another noteworthy feature is the password sharing utility.
While we never recommend you to share your passwords indiscriminately some situations can warrant it if there is ever a need for that lastpass is the feature and it's effortless to use apart from sharing passwords you can also share folders while premium subscribers can only share one item.
People subscribe to the family plan can enjoy unlimited sharing just enter the person's email address and the details will be sent to them however you can only share items with other lastpass users if the email address you have entered is not associated with any lastpass account the person will only get a.
Notification explaining to them how to create a lastpass account to access the share we think lastpass is remarkable in its features and therefore gets all the marks 5 out of 5. the next facet that we will look at is security the security policy of a password.
Manager can make all the difference since your credentials and passwords are not safe without advanced threat detection and encryption thankfully lastpass is one of the most reliable providers in the world in that regard the first indicator of their trustworthiness is the zero knowledge.
Policy which means that the company does not sell track or access any information stored in the user's vault all the encryption and decryption happens at the device level eliminating the likelihood of the company or its staff accessing your password or login information.
Lastpass also uses aes 256-bit encryption to secure your data remember that this is the same type of encryption used by banks the government the military and the world's leading security companies this makes your data unbreachable no matter how skilled the hacker is apart from the encryption the app also.
Utilizes advanced transport layer security which helps to thwart in-transit attacks there are also other security options like multi-factor authentication and security challenge the former allows you to add an extra layer of authentication depending on your preference.
You can use a third-party authentication tool like yubikey for a desktop or laptop a fingerprint on a smartphone device or a usb drive for a compatible device the extra security layer means that even if your master password is compromised intruders or hackers still can't access your information from other devices.
The security challenge feature on the other hand helps to audit and review your password strength it makes sure that you have effective and secure passwords and that your online accounts aren't built on a shaky foundation lastpass also allows you to use a one-time password or otp when accessing.
Your account this is especially helpful when you are logging into your account from a high-risk device like a public computer to use this feature you just need to prompt lastpass to generate the otp remember as it's a one-time use password once you have used it it can never be used again by anyone.
Again lastpass gets a perfect five score thanks to its unwavering reliability next we will take a look at how interactive intuitive and easy to use the app is while there are compatible applications for mac os linux windows android and ios lastpass is much more powerful and efficient when you use its.
Web browser extension of course there are browser extensions for every major platform enabling users to relish an all-in-one password management experience there is a single sign-in option which means as soon as you have entered your master password the browser extension will automatically fill in your username.
And passwords when visiting recognized websites despite the remarkable functionality of the browser extension though you still need to download the lastpass application since that's where you will be managing your account settings and data the app is usually easy to download no matter.
The device you are using and to make things seamless for you when logging in you only need your master password or biometric information for compatible devices like the browser extensions the applications except a windows version also perform admirably with syncing being super efficient and.
Users experiencing no lags whatsoever on top of that you can effortlessly work across multiple devices for some reason the windows application is hugely limited missing out on key options like sharing center security challenge and advanced features you are also limited to only 5 000 items also free users can't use it at all.
According to a spokesperson from lastpass the company is no longer developing the windows app but it will keep being supported and distributed back to the upsides another striking thing you will quickly notice is that the apps are well designed each having a beautiful and easy to.
Navigate interface no matter which device you are using you will enjoy a seamless password managing experience you will especially appreciate how data is classified into various menu options making it easy for you to organize your passwords notes addresses and credit cards in this category lastpass gets 3.5 out of 5.
Only falling short of the perfect scores because of its limited windows app that takes us to customer support generally lastpass performs decently when it comes to customer support offering helpful answers to challenging questions on their websites however getting in touch with their support team can be a hassle with.
Limited options available and the highest priority given to the paid users the free users are mostly left on their own which is less than ideal but that doesn't mean last pass support is completely useless their website offers a wide range of instructional guides faqs and training videos lastpass has.
Three twitter accounts one for monday to friday online support the second for blog posts and general updates about lastpass and the third one for notifying users about service outages and resolved issues for what it's worth the twitter account for live support is quite helpful but you'd have to be very patient.
It's disappointing however that there is no link for direct email support which means the company expects users to scour through their faqs and tutorials to find suitable answers to their pressing questions if you are not able to resolve your problem that way you can then find the link for email support at the bottom of.
The webpage you can submit your questions via a form after which you'll be assigned a case number as expected paid users get a higher priority over other users but most times they respond to everyone eventually it may just take a while when it comes to customer support lastpass scores.
Three out of five while not perfect it's a decent result finally let's review lastpass's pricing structure in plants the first noteworthy thing about lastpass is its incredible freemium version to be honest you will find it difficult to see another free option that can.
Match lastpass's freemium version in terms of features however it does not come with important features like cloud storage emergency access and 2fa option lastpass unlike most password managers offers two distinct products for those looking to secure and automize password and credential management.
The premium plan and the family plan costing 36 dollars a year the premium plan comes with a wide range of features which include priority email support advanced authentication options emergency access password sharing from one to many and one gigabyte of secure cloud storage the family plan is a bit more expensive.
At 48 a year this plan is ideal for families since it provides unlimited sharing and accommodates up to six users of course it also comes with all the features of the premium version and some unique ones like unlimited shared folders and family manager dashboard there are also four exclusive plans for.
Enterprises and businesses mfa teams enterprise and identity the mfa plan only offers increased security through multi-factor authentication at three dollars per user per month the team's enterprise and identity plans are password management products much as you would expect with lastpass's competitors.
The team's plan costs four dollars a user per month while the enterprise and identity plans cost six dollars and eight dollars per user per month respectively lastpass gets four to five marks in this pricing category thanks to its free offering and range of affordable plans see the official link we have added down.
